Forum: web Subject: Full-text search of Wayback archive

Is it possible to do a full-text search of the Wayback archive? For example, search on "Ronald Reagan" and find all the pages on Wayback that contain that string? Thanks.

Ok. Hope some day would be amazing better than Google for my purposes across time + space need deep time searches. Google suffers from "recentism" since it only has pages that are active and most of the web is now disappeared.

Good news TVNews - already found a number of things. Will be used often. This is basically Wayback for TV but with full-text searching *and* video - amazing.
